Church on Sunday

Ella came to church with us on Sunday.  Here is a picture of the sanctuary.  I waited to take the picture after the sanctuary was empty because I didn’t want to be disrespectful to anybody’s worship.

After church OC went off to choir practice and I invited Ella to join me at the Women’s luncheon, but she decided to hang out in the Serenity Garden instead.

Later when I went to check on her, she said she’d been sitting there the whole while, but she seemed quite refreshed after such a long stint in the sun, and I noticed little elephant foot prints crisscrossing the sand.  She admitted that she had slipped into the nice air conditioned choir room for just a while and listened to them rehearse.  We have no pictures of that because she thought she would get in trouble.

After church, we went to a pool party.  Stay tuned for some pics of a real party animal.  (Well, don’t stay TOO tuned.  I am about to go to work and OC has a concert tonight, so it may be a few (24 or so) hours before the pool pics get processed.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. Oh I’m sO glad Ella got to service! She is such a good little Christian elephant! Most of the time…

    Quilly – is that a NEW church in your new neighborhood? Or is that the church behind the (was it McDonalds? or Burger King?)? It is beauuuuuuutiful! I sO envy OC being in the choir. I bet he sings beautifully… How come sOMe people get sO much musical talent? And others of us get none? *heeeere it comes* … NO FAIR!!!

  2. Melli — this church is in Honolulu — in fact, it is on the edge of China town. It is still 20 minutes from our house, but the people there are great and the pastors are wonderful. And I can’t sing worth beans, either.

    Polona — she likes her music.

  3. What a beautiful spot for a wee Ella Phlint to meditate for the afternoon, and I sure don’t blame her for slipping into the air conditioned room for awhile to enjoy the music and cool down a bit before returning to her meditation. She is so cute.
